Subject: Cornball narration...
...but a very nice, enjoyable collection of footage.
...and honestly, that's what I like about these films in the first place.
Subject: Drive Carefully!
Nice little film about the importance of careful driving. All the urban and suburban scenes were filmed in Detroit. Interesting to see how thronged with people and cars downtown Detroit was back in 1951...
Subject: Permit to Drive
This film, although from many years ago is very relevant for today. If people would understand and act like they know how to drive. Very good! I could use this in my driver education classes.
Subject: Good solid film
This film does what it intended, to make the public aware that having a driver's license is a responsibility. Good narration, filming, and direction.
Subject: Is it me or..
I liked this film, though itÂ¡Â¯s a shade too long, about how important a driverÂ¡Â¯s license is, as it gives you permission, not a right, to drive. Liked the POV of this film, as itÂ¡Â¯s spoken by the license itself, though I have better ideas on how this could have been delivered (The title character should have been animated!). But liked the points that this film offered on what a priveledge it is for the population to be holding one of these, and that this priviledge is often misused. Liked the accident, it had a certain noir quality about it for some odd reason. So, uh, itÂ¡Â¯s safe to say I liked this film lol
Subject: "Passport To Pleasure"
Vague driver's ed film by GM, narrated by a non-animated driver's permit, that begins with an exposition about how the car enables us to do so many things. Like a teen watching this wouldn't have figured this out already! It then follows with stern warnings about being courteous and following the road rules, yet it never really explains what those things are. Not terribly interesting, since it's a bunch of stock photos including GM cars with no actors/dialogue.
